 Hey group - jumping in to Android to write some code (hobby mainly
but ...)
Can't tell if the TMobile mytouch is as development friendly as the
g1. Searched around but can't find any info. Android page only lists
g1. I need a phone for general use as well as coding and have to make
the move ASAP.
Thanks for any info, opinions, flames.
(sorry this is cross posted to another Android group - if that's bad I
will refrain in the future)


dev newb g1 vs mytouch

by Yusuf T. Mobile » Wed, 12 Aug 2009 06:47:01 GMT

 Hi AN, both phones are developer-friendly, the differences are:
- the G1 has a physical keyboard, which easier to use or test apps
that require lots of text entry, etc.
- in case it matters, you can modify the OS on the G1 with a little
hacking (Don't tell T-Mobile I said that. Thanks.)
- the MyTouch is faster and sleeker.

1. is GLSurfaceView life-cycle the same as Activity that own it ?

what puzzle me so much is that i can't destroy a GLSurfaceView while i
don't want to exit the activity.

the fact is when i destroy a GLSurfaceView which had show in the screen
(that means it has binded to the activity's SurfaceHolder), the
activity exits without any prompting. Perhaps ,the Context which
provided in the Construction of GLSurfaceView joins the two things

so my conclusion is that a GLSurfaceView can only be destroyed when
exit the activity.

is there anyway to destroy a GLSurfaceView without exit activity?
is there someone can provide a clue?


2. java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: bitmap size exceeds VM budget

IMHO, if the device offers 50% more memory per application, but the 
bitmaps take up more than 50% more memory, then the net effect is a 
stricter limitation.

i'm seeing some occasional OOMs only on Droid, and so i'm being extra 
careful about recycling bitmaps and all that.
